2004 Audi A4 1.8T quattro AWD 4dr Sedan (1.8L 4cyl Turbo 6M)
I have owned 3 A4 1.8t quattros (1997) was my first car. I have honestly never had a MAJOR issue with either of my 3 cars, worst thing i had happen was my suspension spring broke while i was driving (in the 1997). I donno maybe i got lucky and everyone got stuck with the bad batch hahaha but any way. Car honestly looks nice from outside and in, drives and handles like a champ, not as fast but if u want a fast car get ones wit bigger engines. there are tho some down falls to em such as the [non-permissible content removed] plastic everyone keeps bringing up, window regulators going out. fortunately i know how to work on em so i never take em to service them. but for those of you who are getting them used and are not prepared to service them on time...dont get it ull just waste your money. if you are and plan to maintain them and not drive like a nascar driver, they will last an would be worth it. by far best car i ever drove

Plastic parts used throughout the engine compartment get old, brittle, fall apart under normal engine heat. Need to take many things apart under the engine compartment to service. Plastic fuel lines kink easily and cause fuel pump failure. Exhaust system falls apart after 6 years. Glove compartment easily breaks off. New parts cost more than the car itself. Audi Stealership (TOWNE AUDI of Englewood NJ) out to rape people overcharging $140/hr. like it was a new car. Stay away from used AUDI's and buy a used Lexus, Infinity or Accura if you want a reliable used car. Sold the car as of March 2016 and bought a wonderful SUBARU FORESTER.
